Nvidia's releases

Ok I know exactly when Sandy Bridge comes out...I already know the Sandy Bridge processor I want for the upgrade I am looking at and I pretty much know the motherboard I want (though I hope people are lying about its price) my question is when is when is Nvidia releasing their new cards? The only answer I have found to that is 2011...not even a quarter.....which is not all together helpful.

And if 2011 is the only answer other there right now....is there a time of year I should be looking for new Nvidia cards?

  1. I am not an expert on Nvidia releases or much of anything but i think its safe to say that the best time to buy is Black Friday. Probably not what you want to hear. Personally speaking, black friday has always been my preferred day to make big electronic purchases. Over time, it saves you lots of money!
  2. The 570 and 580 are already released. The 560 is the only one that remains. That is said to be released when SB releases, or their abouts at least. January 20th is the 560's release date.

  3. If the 560 is all that is coming then what the heck is this...

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/gtx-580-vapor-chamber-heatsink-cooler,11597.html

    Is this a 580 that is coming or is that the normal 580?
  4. So if that is the normal 580 and there are no big Nvidia things dropping soon....does still planning to do a machine with 470s SLIed make sense...? Good power and that is very nice especially when looking to SLI.

    That article is well over a month old and since then the 580 and 570 have been released.

    Other than the 560 and maybe some lower end 5xx cards, you shouldn't expect a new generation anytime soon.
  6. The best Nvidia card I would recommend is a single 570. It's WAY cooler, quieter, and less power consumption than that of it's older generation. It's performance also matches any high-end card out.
  7. Is the 570 worth it with my budget it very likely kills my chance to SLI...?
  8. Ok then...if I am saving for SLI and getting a single card now....the question then is 570 or 580?
  9. Lol the 5850 (OC to 5870) handles all my games fine, I think your 570 should handle any game fine on highest settings (as does my 5850). Not to mention dual cards isn't always the best since some games don't always have great SLI/CF support.
  10. Will I get better graphical performance out of 1 580 GTX or 2 470s?
  11. Wait and second question...how many games are there out there that can really handle SLI....is it most of them?
  12. Depends on the game, some give 2 GPUs the upperhand some not so much. Also no reviews really have been done.
  13. Will I get better graphical performance out of 1 580 GTX or 2 470s?

    Technically 2 470's will give you better performance but if you are just building your system you should get the 580, because you won't notice a difference, and its smarter to start with just one powerful card.

    But if you already have a 470 and an adequate PSU then getting a second 470 would also be a good decision.
